'm curious about the other side since you're talking about 2008. marco rubio and paul ryan spoke at this dinner. these are speeches where they're trying to define who they are. how would a rubio ryan stack up against clinton? it sort of feels like 2008 reversed except experience would come on the democratic side with hillary and youth might come from rubio or ryan on the republican side. >> clinton is a favorite among young people, especially young women. they're going to help determine future elections. i think paul ryan and marco rubio, they're trying to rebrand themselves and recast the republican party as a party of diversity and perhaps big ideas and a larger goal post. but i want to say this because i have to say this as vice chair of the party. as you know, the democratic party has a large and broad and deep base including vice president biden, who's done a terrific job in his capacity as the second in command, but also, we have governors. a lot of diversity. duval patrick and we can all look as governor cuomo, you have elizabeth warren that might be considered presidentia

, lieberman mccain and senator graham mold, taking more hawkish positions. you also see marco rubio playing another sort of somewhere between hawkish and moderate position that might go in some interesting ways. you'll also see bob corker who's taking a new position on the senate foreign relations committee, have the opportunity to do that, too. but, again, it does seem similarly to some on the democratic side that this is somewhat unclaimed territory and now that senator mccain is going to have something of a diminished role because he's no longer going to be the ranking republican on the armed services committee, could also arise new voices coming out. >> seeing that big list of republicans on the side, on the mostly democratic side on that afghanistan amendment today i thought was maybe a watershed moment. spencer ackerman, national security writer for "danger room" at wire.com. great to see you, spenc. >> thank you. >>> just ahead, i'll wholeheartedly endorse an idea pitched by a superconservative media watchdog guy who hates me. watch and believe. >>> most of what vice president biden

republican senator marco rubio said republicans should take a strong stand against president obama's plan to raise taxes on upper income americans. last night, he was honored with the jack kemp leadership awards and rubio said he's against the president's plan because he says it will hurt businesses and workers. [ applause ] >> this isn't about a pledge. it isn't about protecting millionaires and billionaires. for me, it's about the fact that tax -- the tax increases he wants would fail to make a small dent in the debt but it would hurt middle-class businesses and the people who work for them. >> also, paul ryan was there. he delivered the keynote speech. he was last year's winner of the kemp leadership award. >>> controversial comedian katt williams says he's done. he's quitting standup comedy after another run-in with the law. >> i'm just gonna go ahead and announce my retirement from standup. i'm kind of done. >> williams made the announcement outside of a seattle hotel monday night after being kicked out. on sunday, he was taken to jail accused of fighting inside a seattle bar. it's t

. and both of them are trying to do personal makeovers and makeovers for the party. marco rubio who i think is in a tier in his own, so far ahead of anybody else if he decides to run, he's worried about just being the hispanic candidate. so he's going to start adding substantive accomplishments to his record. he has a two-year plan between now and 2014, november of 2014 to try to notch some specific accomplishments on immigration and on the economic front. so if and when he does run for president, he's not just the great communicator in the eyes of republicans, but somebody that has substantive accomplishments. for paul ryan, he doesn't want to be the austerity guy. so he too is looking at poverty, looking at immigration, and other issues to broaden his own portfolio. we have a great nugget in the piece about how in the campaign he wanted to go in inner cities, talk about poverty, and he got slapped back by the romney folks who said there's no constituency, there's no votes, we're not focusing on those issues. >> what's the next act for paul ryan coming off a losing vice presidential bid? w
story. it says here that marco rubio does not want to be the hispanic candidate, and paul ryan does not want to be the austerity guy. both want to run for president. each is trying to change their own image. our cameras will be there covering that dinner. from pennsylvania, a republican caller, what do you make of this bid put out by house republicans yesterday? caller: i think it is bad because i am a senior and i depend on social security and medicare. host: continue. caller: i think it is not right because i am a senior and there are a lot of other seniors out there who depend on social security and medicare. every time you hear something, it is social security and medicare. the seniors are numbers. we have plenty of us out here. i am a veteran of vietnam. it seems like every time something comes up, the american people have to fight, fight, fight. we are tired of fighting. it is time for the republican party to stop arguing with them bending the 2% of the republican party is not going to do me no good. what about the 98% of us, and the seniors also? independent, an c analler ca
of moving in that direction here? we've seen marco rubio make some comments. we've seen even paul ryan as well. do we see a shift that's happening here that's a little more immigrant friendly. >> i think losing for a second time and getting a low number of hispanics really stunk. it caused a wake-up call that we haven't seen before, and i think there's this realization that the immigration issue, though not the priority issue for hispanics, is an emotional issue and that we are losing hispanics and not able to talk to hispanics about other issues like the economy because, you know, because of the rhetoric, because of the tone issues like and the policy on lishz line immigration. i think there is a realization. now, you know, suzanne, this is washington. there's a huge difference between a realization and legislation. we'll just have to see what happens, and we're going to have to see what kind of skin in the game president obama and the democrats have come up with. this is going to have to be a bipartisan solution. >> all right. you mentioned mitt romney in his grave. let's see if he b
. bill o'reilly talked to marco rubio a star on the republican side. he said 85 billion a year if rates go up to 39 percent. it is nothing but symbolic, listen. >> my parents worked in the service industry and beaut a house. we always had more than we needed thank god and thank this country. it is only going to be possible in the future if we have limited government and free enterprise. people come here from all over the world to get rid of big government. i don't understand why we don't do a better job of lay out. i hope to be one of a multile voice to make that argument. it is the only way forward. we'll never be able to raise taxings. you can't generate enough. we need new taxpayers. >> gretchen: we didn't get our message out effectively enough. that is so true. the republicans actually have a legitimate message when it comes to the fact. if we increase taxings democrats have to cut entitlements. somewhere it gets lost in the shuffle. we ard from the president if we communicated better you would like my plan. what about the republicans, do we need a better mouth piece for the republi
millions and his work. marco rubio, pat toomey. very conservative, anti-tax, anti-government purists in the mold of jim demint. however, he also backed in republican primaries a number of republican candidates who simply were not electable according to the republican establishment and the establishment was right. for example, remember christine o'donnell, i'm not a witch, from delaware. ken buck of colorado. and others. so those are some of the reasons why he definitely has ruffled many a-feather with the party leaders and i have to tell you first thing i saw when the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell released a statement today was making the point that demint had, quote, uncompromising service. didn't have to read between the lines too much to see there's a backhanded compliment. >> dana, what about bigger picture here and talking about the republican party aenl just talking about folks like ryan and rubio, let's say, part of maybe the next generation republicans. do you think that demint's brand of republicanism is falling out of favor with sort of the newer version of what
